    Re: kamikaze fly gear

    As an aside,
    I own two Saratoga eggbeaters, best reels I've had.
    One for breaming, the other's handled snapper & sharks (easily). About $90 for the both of them from an online auction site. Have n't used their rods but..
    Having flyfished in Zimbabwe, South Africa, UK and Canada and experienced a wide variety of combinations of tackle it is my opinion that sometimes a combo just 'works'. One of the best fly combos I've used, I found out was a Canadian Tyre (like Supa Cheap Auto but with fishing & hunting gear) home brand rod and cheap Daiwa reel. The rod was cheap as: bent wire guides... plastic reel seat... but the action was amazing!!
    I've not used another #10 rod like that since.
    Just goes to show, the matching components are what make the combo, and quality is sometimes available from lower-end-of-the-market brands.
    Just my opinion ;-)

    Re: kamikaze fly gear

    Ok here's my 2 bobs worth! I've been fly fishing for some 30yrs and have cast everything from El Cheapos to Sage, Loomis, TFO aah the list goes on. But wait I still own a couple of really cheap rods which I let my kids useand keep for visitors who I teach, no problems. Those Kamakazi's are not great, but a whole lot better than some others out there. If you can afford to - go better, if not just get it but put a decent line on it. It is surprising how this will make a world of difference to and average rod .

    Most of all DON'T WAIT, Buy a Rod (Any Rod) Reel and some decent line and get out Fly Fishing. You'll LOVE IT and you next post will be about tying Flies. Now there's a can of worms to look forward to.
